      Yeah I know. But Fukuyama made another version of this script, which was released in both 1 and 1b. This script has more features so I guess it is verson 2 ;)

      Just give your characters a "None" character graphic and they won't be visible until you give them a character graphic again. That's what I always do.

      @Me (LOL!): It could be 1.1 or 1.2 or... ?_? Well... I guess I'll just put a 2 up there for the sake of differing between them.

      Take a look at this code:

      Code: [Select]
      # ?Switch setup for transparent status
      # When true, switch control is used
      # TRANSPARENT_SWITCH = true
      TRANSPARENT_SWITCH = false

      # ?Switch number for transparent status
      # When TRANSPARENT_SWITCH is true, transparency will be activated when the switch of this number is on
      TRANSPARENT_SWITCHES_INDEX = 20

      Make TRANSPARENT_SWITCH true. Now the number after TRANSPARENT_SWITCHES_INDEX is the switch that will be used. You can set (for ex. numebr 20) on or off to make the script turnmed off or on.

      I did not try it out ::), but this:

      Code: [Select]
      if transparent == false and TRANSPARENT_SWITCH
        transparent = $game_switches[TRANSPARENT_SWITCHES_INDEX]
      end
      for character in @characters
        character.transparent = transparent
        [...]

      + the comments made it clear.

      Thanks, it works smooth now except for one thing: Whenever I don't walk around you can still see the second and third party members animating (walking), do you know how I can fix this?

      I'm not quite sure but it sounds like the same thing used in events. You can shoose to 'show animation' or not. I'm assuming it shows something to that effect in the script you could try and change

      Ye, that seems obvious, but I'm a horrible scripter really so my chance of finding it is zero.

      make TRANSPARENT_SWITCH = false to TRANSPARENT_SWITCH = true

      and use the switch number from TRANSPARENT_SWITCHES_INDEX to toggle the caterpilalrs transparancy.

      Ok, I found the lines in the script that I'm supposed to edit to make my second, third, and fourth party member to stop when I do. Now what do I do? I've never scripted a line in my life, btw.

      New to RMXP? ;) All you do is remove them from the database:system tab. Then later ad them in by events.
